The magic of Disney is coming to Lake County.
Space is still available for the Disney Institute’s “The Disney Keys to Excellence” seminar set to run from 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. March 15 at the University Center at the College of Lake County in Grayslake.
“We want a great partner whose focus is on education and has a proven partnership with the local business community,” said Disney Institute spokesman Terry Brinkoetter.
The full-day event gives area business professionals a chance to discover innovative Disney business strategies.
“People will leave with a lot of practical ideas that are adaptable to their own business,” Brinkoetter said. He added participants also leave with a different perspective on their own company.
The educational sessions — focusing on leadership, management, loyalty and service — are designed to assist people from small, mid-sized or large businesses.
The cost to attend is $399. A limited number of scholarships are available through the college.
Since 1986, the institute has offered a series of programs using the Walt Disney World Resort as a model to showcase Disney’s business and management approach. The local event is a condensed road-show version. To register, call (847) 543-2033.
